    Version 3.75 Alpha

    EXPECT ABSOLUTELY NOTHING LESS THAN EVERYTHING TO GO WRONG
    PREPARE TO BE BOMBARDED WITH UPDATES


    Bugs squashed so far:
    • Grammar & Spelling mistakes
    • Switchr Arc not showing home shortcut
    • Floating windows persisting after change in orientation
    • Bottom edge indicator displacement when drawn from right to left
    • Running indicators showing on closed apps (non-root only)
    • Don't let the user disable all triggers. There must be at least one.

    PASSED ALPHA. GET LATEST BETA FROM THIS POST
    15

    Updated the previous post with Beta 5!

    Great improvements have been made in terms of how live switching and killing apps function together and not interfere with each other. It was a very tough problem to tackle, but I'm trying my best to patch everything up one by one.

    Thanks for testing!

    Edit: Updated to 6. Release candidate should land tomorrow with full GB/Froyo/Eclair support.
